    Did anyone apply for the part-time accelerated program? anybody currently enrolled in the part-time accelerated program? I would be interested in your experience thus far in the program

    Hello Changetonursing:

    The Part-Time BSN is a brand new program starting in May on the Newark campus only, so you and and your classmates will be pioneers. I'm sure you will have lots of advice for those who follow you.

    In the meantime, why not join our Alumni group on Facebook and post any questions there.>> http://www.facebook.com/UMDNJ.Nursing#!/group.php?gid=181446948400

    You can also "like" the official page: http://www.facebook.com/UMDNJ.Nursing

    Good luck on your application and feel free to stop by and see me when you come aboard!

    dear prospective applicants,

    please note important changes regarding the bsn program at umdnj

    effective march 2011 for applicants to the fall 2011 term, all of your courses must be completed prior to submitting your application. this means progress reports will no longer be accepted and your application will not be reviewed until all required documents, including proof of your completed pre-reqs are submitted.

    applications for the fall term will be available beginning march 1st and the deadline is may 20th.

    please view the website for details on the new application procedures and deadlines: http://sn.umdnj.edu/academics/accelbsn/faq-absn.htm



    these changes are due to the fact we are now accepting applications online only, through the new nursing centralized application system (n-cas). this system will allow you to create your own account and check the status of your application and related documents.

    additional updates:


    • accelerated bsn program, stratford campus
      seats are still open for summer (may 2011) admission on the stratford campus. the application deadline has been extended until march 15, 2011.


    • part time bsn program, newark campus

    seats are still open for summer (may 2011) admission to the part time program. the application deadline has been extended until march 15, 2011. this new program is just starting up and is currently offered only on the newark campus.
    please contact a nursing student recruiter on the newark or stratford campus, or or our enrollment services offices if you have questions regarding these changes.

    good luck!

    I checked with our nursing student recruiter in Newark and here is her answer. Good luck with your application and and feel free to contact Mae directly with future questions about the program in Newark....

    "All applicants need to apply to either the full time accelerated BSN program or to the part time BSN program. They cannot apply to both at once and they also need to select one campus (Newark or Stratford)."

    Hope this helps,
    Mae

    Hello!

    This is goodtobenurse! I have several things to ask you.. please help me out!!
    What should I bring for the TEAS test? Someone said I need a student ID and a parking permit.
    I got confused on the student ID. Are they talking about actual UMDNJ student ID card or just knowing the student ID number? Also I heard that I can purchase a daily parking permit for a day. And Where should I park?
    Do you know which building I suppose to find?
    I live far away from Newark. So, I don't want to trip twice.
    Could you clarify for me?

    Thank you!!
